Channel 4 as part of its news service, have announced that the jet stream has finally moved from its unusual location south of ireland and will be over scotland for the weekend.
For those that don't know it is because of being on the cold north side of the jetstream we have been having such a rough Spring.
The East coast may well hit 21 degrees this weekend unfortunately in the west it will be cloudy and rainy but still much warmer. So it looks like we should be able to start some planting out even if is in the wet for some of us.
That IS good news. Let's hope it stays put and we finally have a decent summer.
Sounds very good to me, please let it stay in the right place so we can have some sun this summer
Is that a promise?
Wow, 21 degrees; I'm ironing my shorts
One of my usual weather sites agrees:
If you want to see the jet stream forecast, go here and click the 'animate' button. At about 90 hours it shoots up over Scotland.

So Saturday should be improving
Oh yes please
...this is the best news I've had in weeks....
roll on spring think we all ready for it
Groovy maps, think I'm in for some rain and some sun on the weekend. Great the garden needs a drink and some sun
Hoping for a bit of rain here, too, hollie hock (hopefully at night, of course!) Had to water all of my outdoor pots at the weekend - pretty unusual at this time of the year. My water authority (ST) are telling customers to be careful with their water use.. and that after the 6 months of deluge that passed for last "summer"!
same here had gales here in devon some of my plants have dried out and look dead,oh dear.
...I've just read it'll be 90 degrees next week...
Bob can you make sure you put that request in for 'rain only at night' then-and can you ask that Scotland gets an 'off' switch for the rain too?
Shadow's got the furniture outside now and we don't want it raining on his parade!
Maybe we can all start putting off our heating -in the greenhouses as well as homes!
Forecast night temps in double figures at the weekend, maybe, just maybe, things about to get going, touch wood.
